OCEANPORT, N.J. &ndash; Trainer Bruce Alexander had the post-position blues after the draw for the $70,000 College of New Jersey Stakes for fillies and mares on Saturday at Monmouth Park.\r\nLady Alexander, the star of his stable this summer, landed the rail &ndash; rarely a good spot going six furlongs at Monmouth.\r\nLady Alexander faces eight rivals in the bid for a third stakes this year at Monmouth. She captured the Red Cross in early June and the Regret on the Haskell Day undercard. Alexander gave the 4-year-old a freshening following a third-place effort in the Trenton Stakes in the mud on Aug. 22.\r\n&ldquo;I feel she&rsquo;s good,&rdquo; Alexander said. &ldquo;I think, preparation-wise, I&rsquo;m coming into the race really good.&rdquo;\r\nExcept for the post.\r\n&ldquo;It&rsquo;s not the post position of choice, normally,&rdquo; Alexander said. &ldquo;She&rsquo;s got enough speed to place herself reasonably well without compromising herself too much.&rdquo;\r\nOne of Alexander&rsquo;s chief concerns is Amazed by Grace who starts next to his filly. In the past, Amazed by Grace has flashed strong early speed. A 4-year-old, Amazed by Grace makes her first start since running third in the Grade 1 La Brea Stakes at Santa Anita last December.\r\n&ldquo;With the bad draw, I&rsquo;ve got a very fast horse right outside of me,&rdquo; Alexander said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s hard to think she won&rsquo;t be lapped right on me. It&rsquo;s just not a good scenario.&rdquo;\r\nD&rsquo;wild Ride is another source of concern, coming off a lucrative win in an $110,000 money-allowance race at Philadelphia Park. She was a game second to Lady Alexander in this year&rsquo;s Regret, a stakes D&rsquo;wild Ride won in 2009.\r\nThe New Jersey-bred Emily Allstar looks to extend her winning streak to three. She battled hard most recently to capture the Jersey Girl Stakes for statebreds by a head.\r\nEillo: Joey P. gets another week\r\nJoey P. caught a break when the Eillo Stakes did not fill last weekend.\r\nTrainer Ben Perkins Jr. felt the popular New Jersey-bred needed one more work before launching a comeback.\r\nHe got it last Sunday: three furlongs in 34.80 seconds at Monmouth.\r\nWith the Eillo in jeopardy, Perkins entered Joey P. in a stakes Friday night at Charles Town.\r\nNow that the Eillo is set for Saturday at Monmouth, Joey P. will likely remain at the track where the 8-year-old gelding is 13-6-1 in 24 starts.\r\nHe has not run since a second-place finish to Unwritten in the John J. Reilly Handicap for New Jersey-breds on May 29, sidelined with a what Perkins calls a &ldquo;nasty quarter crack. It needed to grow down. We had been working on him for a while, but it comes to a point where you have to let nature take over.&rdquo;\r\nAs has always been the case, Joey P. did not require much training.\r\n&ldquo;He comes to hand quickly,&rdquo; Perkins said. &ldquo;He gets his muscle tone back quickly. He&rsquo;s a horse that likes to train. He just likes racing.&rdquo;\r\nJoe Bravo will ride.\r\nUnwritten has not won since beating Joey P. in the Reilly. Also a New Jersey-bred, Unwritten has a pair of seconds and a third, all in stakes, since the Reilly for trainer Rick Dutrow.\r\nPaco Lopez picks up the mount on Unwritten, the odds-on favorite in his last two races.
